Ticket racketeering may get back on track, Shohoz fears

Ticket racketeering or selling tickets in the black market is a practice in many developing or underdeveloped nations of the world. Sectors like sports or transportation suffer the most due to this malfeasance. Getting train tickets in Bangladesh is no different, says a press release.

The government did take bold steps to prevent ticket black marketeering, implementing NID verification while registering on railway portal, supporting the slogan “Ticket Jar, Bhromon tar” given by the honorable minister at that time, which laid one of the major stones toward curbing ticket racketeering. While this was a big initiative, and it definitely reduced black marketing, it did not totally stop underhand sales.
